It is good to see this one saved here for future generations. It was one of those few political parody vids that found a way to be funny, and painfully accurate when our world leaders were making no sense at all.

To answer the question from before.This was when the United States defied NATO, and illegally invaded Iraq. Suddenly Blair, who on behalf of Britain had denounced our aggression, started going along with whatever crazy shit came out of Bush's mouth. He contradicted everything he had stood for and his behavior was to say the very least, weird.

It really was a time of such total insanity. Listening to our world leaders defy public opinion and international law to validate the invasion of not just one, but two separate sovereign nations. While we all sat there in shock going WTF is going on? They just sat there making crazy talk about the "Axis of Evil".

They acted like the rest of the world should be kissing their ass for saving them from their invisible nemesis. Which they had learned about from one political defector who was trying to save his ass by feeding bullshit data to the CIA and MI3. Data that obviously was false, and had in absolutely no way been verified. Bush even said in one of his state of the union speeches after it had become glaringly obvious that it had all been total bullshit, "Whoops."

What a douche bag, he sat their making jokes to the whole world about it as if it was some cute, funny little mistake he made by parking in someones spot that was clearly labeled.

We were so stupid, some of us even laughed to, we laughed while our friends and families and the friends and families of people we had never met and who had done us no wrong were killing each other for something that had never existed.

That is why this video rocks, its not just silly; it shows how unreal and insane to see these men get away with mass murder, and got us to pull the trigger for them.

Hilarious; I believe the put-down at the time was that Blair was Bush's 'poodle'.
